Really a shame that HBO passed up on this show. So much potential. To me 'Lucky Louie' is the modern day version of 'the Honeymooners' but instead of Gleason's acerbic meltdowns Louie is in a permanent dysthymia funk, who's more apt to cry, than yell about all the family's problems. With the talented comedienne Pamela Aldon as an Alice. Perhaps it was the situation comedy model that doomed this show. I don't know. Thankfully C.K. rebounded with the very funny 'Louie'(also with Pamela Aldon in cameo's).

A very good show but is slow. Dark comedy and I like it. I also have fallen in love with the show "Baskets" (also dark and done by Louis CK) Christine Baskets (Louie Anderson) is absolutely amazing in "Baskets"

Started out good... the wheel started to come off the last few episodes.. and that kid was f'ing annoying.. I just finished watching before today's news came out (rim shot) ... makes this more creepy now, lots of whacking off jokes.

For starters Louie C.K. Is a genius but it's Kinda like they wrote the script the morning of filming. I actually really enjoy the show but there's a reason it was canceled. The man got it perfect the second time around so just kinda look at this as a rehearsal (which they didn't do) and you'll find joy.

I saw this on HBO back in the day and recently on Amazon Prime Instant. I'm surprised this is a critics choice when it comes to series. It's pretty raunchy. You figure critics would snub their noses, so to speak, at such a filthy show. I loved every episode. I'm surprised a season 2 was never picked up. Louie on FX is ok, but I thought this show had a little more freedom from a comic standpoint. Recommended for fans of Louie C.K.'s stand up specials.

Lucky Louie was Louis C.K.'s first attempt at sitcom. He was still learning the ropes as an actor. His second series was a much greater hit and brought him to the pinnacle of comedy. If I had to name one person as the King Of Comedy today it would be Louis. He is a brilliant comedian. Not with the passion of George Carlin but more resigned to the day-to-day life of living in NYC. Many props for Louis C.K. to win whatever award they give comedians. Did I mention he is brilliant.

Get some laughs from this. It's very sitcom like. Some funny characters in it. Lots of profanity but that suits the characters well.

Only watched a few minutes, then changed it... Came off as very forced to me... "Louie" is a much better show...
